Google Release Android 13 Final Beta Build Ahead of Official Release.


Google has made the final beta version of Android 13 available to developers, prior to the release of the operating system’s complete commercial reveal, which is anticipated to happen in the coming weeks.

Google stated in a notice to developers building the platform’s apps and features that the final OS would arrive in a few weeks, with the most recent trial serving as the fourth and final one.

As to what to expect in this final beta version, “There’s a lot to explore in Android 13, from privacy features like the new notification permission and photo picker to productivity features like themed app icons and per-app language support, as well as modern standards like HDR video, Bluetooth LE Audio, and MIDI 2.0 over USB. We’ve also extended the updates we made in 12L, giving you better tools to take advantage of tablet and large screen devices.”, Google announced.

The following bugs were fixed in the new update:

  • Fixed an issue where on some devices, paired Bluetooth devices could be observed to connect and disconnect from the device rapidly.
  • Fixed an issue where the Google Camera app occasionally crashed on Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices.
  • Fixed an issue where, when a user checks for system updates by navigating to Settings > System > System update, the system incorrectly reported Android 12 as the device’s Android version, even when the device was already successfully updated to an Android 13 build. [Note: Also fixed in Beta 3.3]
  • Fixed an issue on Pixel 6 and Pixel 6 Pro devices where the Now Playing page sometimes got stuck on Downloading song database.

The Android Beta Feedback app is available on Pixel phones to report issues. The Android Beta community is on Reddit, and you can reach it from the app drawer or through Quick Settings to report bugs in the Google issue tracker.

Since it was unveiled to partners in early 2022, Android 13 has already gone through a number of developer preview and beta testing iterations. Android 12, which was made available in October 2021, will be replaced by it.

The Pixel 4 (XL), Pixel 4a, Pixel 4a 5G, Pixel 5, Pixel 5a, Pixel 6, and Pixel 6 Pro, as well as the Android Emulator, can all run Android 13 Beta 4 system images.
